Beltway Punditosis

If I may interject one thought with respect to Beltway Punditosis ((tm) - me) it would be that anyone who claims to "represent the American people" better have something to base that claim on other than stories about moving out among the people every now and then.

There is one and only one class of people in Washington that can empirically be said to "represent the American people" and that is members of Congress. They are the only people who are directly elected by the people and therefore they are the only ones who, imperfect as they are, represent the American people.

It is the height of arrogance for beltway pundits to suggest that they are more representative of Americans than the people's elected representatives.
